How to use lawmaking in a sentence?

  1. Sarah Binder:

    Trumps deep unpopularity limits lawmaking in another way, first, the Democratic base shows little interest in their representatives making deals with Trump that would give President Trump credit and enhance President Trump position for 2020. NAFTA 2.0 is a prime example. Really not clear whether Democrats will get the concessions their base groups demand or the extent to which the Speaker might be dragging her heels. Either way, that trade agreement is moving very slowly. And because the president is so unpopular nationally and with independents, theres limited pressure on Democrats to resolve problems.

  2. Sarah Binder:

    Does( an apparent) rise in incivility complicate problem-solving and lawmaking, more so than ideological divides between the two parties ? or does a rise in incivility merely reflect the increased partisan combustion we see every day on Capitol Hill ?

  3. Sarah Binder:

    Its a really tough environment for lawmaking, first, the parties are surely more ideologically polarized from each other than they were decades ago. Second, theres more sheer partisanship in town than before -- tit for tat, your team is for it, so my team is against it. Third, close electoral competition narrows the window for dealmaking -- each election offers each party a chance to hold or gain control. ... [ And, ] because the president is so unpopular nationally and with independents, theres limited pressure on Democrats to resolve problems.

  4. Sam Rayburn:

    It has always been my ambition since childhood to live such a life that one day my fellow citizens would call me to membership in this popular branch of the greatest lawmaking body in the world. Out of their confidence and partiality they have done this. It is now my sole purpose here to help enact such wise and just laws that our common country will by virtue of these laws be a happier and a more prosperous country. I have always dreamed of a country which I believe this should be and will be, and that is one in which the citizenship is an educated and patriotic people, not swayed by passion and prejudice, and a country that shall know no East, no West, no North, no South, but inhabited by a people liberty loving, patriotic, happy, and prosperous, with its lawmakers having no other purpose than to write such just laws as shall in the years to come be of service to human kind yet unborn. [Applause]

  5. John C. Calhoun:

    To maintain the ascendancy of the Constitution over the lawmaking majority is the great and essential point on which the success of the [American] system must depend; unless that ascendancy can be preserved, the necessary consequence must be that the laws will supersede the Constitution; and, finally, the will of the Executive, by influence of its patronage, will supersede the laws ...
